This restaurant is on the outskirts of Trastevere, a bottle of house wine is only six Euro and very good. If you try this place out, be sure to get there early as it fills up quickly.

An excellent Sicilian restaurant where the portions are huge, it is a little more expensive than most restaurants in the area but is well worth it. The fish and Nero d’Avola are excellent, it gets very busy and would be worth booking a table to avoid disappointment.
